Modern Italian food, modern decor, could have been in any city in the world. Creative. Would fit into New York or San Francisco as well.
We had 2 first courses and a salad and desert, which was enough. Portions are generous. Wine by the glass. Enjoyable. Rather expensive.

Thank Anatea

I live in London and read about this restaurant and wanted to visit , had a good time but I found it overrated, I'm accustomed to dinner/ not bad meal .......loud music where it was difficult to have dinner conversation ( and for me a perfect dinner includes conversation ) plus we had to wait about 10-15 min between starters and main( I'm always confused where you go to dinner in London /UK -less staff but your always attended to, Trinidad ha! ) food was good ( cost was more than when I had dinner at 3 star restaurant in London ) but that is Trinidad ........

Dear Karibbean,
thank you for taking the time to write your first review,we are very happy that you read about us in London/UK but at the same time sorry that we did not meet you expectation ,it's thru,the restaurant could be a bit noisy at times,especially for dinner on weekends. . . . .

. . . . We are extremely happy that our kitchen provides you and your party with main course in just 10 minutes(with over two hundred guest every night this Christmas season ,that is quiet remarkable).

Our front staff do go out of their way with the extra touches like to open doors, provide bag hangers, refold napkins when you are absent from your table, gives you a warm smile and try to pamper our guests and anticipate their needs, however there seems no evidence that this was done here which is very surprising.

We are competitively priced but then again we are quite a different venue for Trinidad.
We hope that you will perhaps give us another opportunity to show you the real Buzo experience but if not we wish you happy dining in the future .

The atmosphere is the best in port of spain with very good décor giving a very modern European ambiance.The food has good quality with fair portions but pricey.The service is very good with the waiters helping with choices and making recommdations depending on particular tastes.The Tiramisu is excellent and the birthday gelatio was very good.

From the beginning the service was excellent. The hostess on the phone took her time to explain all the alternatives and made suggestions. When we reached the security helped us to park. We are seniors and to be honest unaccustomed with eating out but it was a special occasion. As we reached the hostess realized we would not be comfortable at the pizza bar and tried to find different seating. She had said we could not get seating until 10pm on the phone so we had opted for the bar. She was able to put us on the patio away from the smoking area (she explained)
The waiter patiently explained to us the menu both the regular and the bar. He took his time and we ended up with a truly delicious meal.
We even got a cake and candles to end the celebration.
Thank you SO much for making our special 70th extra special. To ALL the staff.

Great environment, great décor, very good service (a stark contrast to other restaurants in POS). The drinks were excellent, and the food outstanding. Not cheap, but worth it.
